Re: Westport

I don't know of anywhere in KC to get decently priced crab anymore. The Pile of Debris has a crab leg buffet that lasts about 5 hours. I like to go and eat my fill right when they open, then I just sit in the booth and read a book for about 4 hours, then I eat another meal of crab legs. Ends up bei...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

It doesn't say anything. I can think of one blaring example of an elected official that disproves your logic.

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

Just please, no flying cars. Unless they fly themselves. People driving on roads are enough of a menace to other vehicles, people, and property. flying cars won't be like BTTF where people are flying themselves. No insurance company will touch them unless any such tech is fully automated. Flying em...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

The threshold is 51% and it's especially difficult for small buildings to convert. Basically, the first 51% of sales need to be conventional loans (which are very difficult to get) or cash, which makes the pool of buyers pretty small in a market like ours. The restrictions are a mess and need to be ...

Re: OFFICIAL - ARTerra (21st and Wyandotte)

There are lots of reasons, besides liabilities, for not building condos. And conversions can be tricky, mainly due to the Dodd Frank laws that were enacted in response to condo development problems tied to the housing bubble of 2008-ish. They make buyer financing very difficult. Also, a lot of devel...

Re: Phase 2 streetcar to UMKC

The first headline I saw this morning was from KCTV Ch. 5, which said, "Kansas City voters narrowly approve new KC Streetcar plan". So, we can reasonably assume that the morons who wrote that headline are college-educated, in addition to being gainfully employed in the journalism industry,...

Re: Midtown Apartments

I can name several instances of my neighbors in Columbus Park believing only they are entitled to park in front of their own house. In one case, the guy backed his truck into the offender, knocking it out of his spot a few inches at a time. In another case, a neighbor broke into the offending vehicl...

Re: Corvino

I agree. My other new favorite is Antler Room, which is completely different in so many ways – size, interior design and color palate, and overall vibe. But the food is just as good. Both are inventive and adventurous.

It won't be long before they are personalized instead of localized and you'll see only your favorite buildings in those commercials. Maybe even your house.

Re: Thrillist ranks KC burgers

Brewery Emperial has an excellent burger. And Corvino has one on their late night bar menu – after 10 – for $8. The fries at both are some of the best, especially at Corvino.
